August PopSugar Must Have Bag

The PopSugar Must Have Bag was probably one of the most anticipated new subscription services this summer.  I know there were quite a few people who were disappointed in the first box and canceled their subscription.  While I wasn't super impressed with the first box, mostly because of the duplicates I decided to stay and see what the next box brought.  I figured the company would listen to their customers and step it up for the next box.  The price of the box is $35 a month w/shipping included.  For that price they say you will receive full size and premium items worth over $100 (based on the manufacturer MSRP at the time acquired by Sugar)

The good: 

Products: Full size products as promised and a nice variety. 

Pricing structure: They have monthly, 3, 6 and yearly subscriptions.  Each one (except monthly) saves you a little bit of money.  

Referrals: The offer a generous referral program.  Refer 2 people get a month free.  5 people 3 months free and 10 people is 6 months free.  

The not so good:

The price: $35 is a little high for a monthly box but you do get some really cool stuff. 

All the treasures!!

Contents of box with value listed, all products are full size: 

Set of 4 Govino 16 oz. Shatter Proof Stemless Wine Glasses. Value = $12.95

8 oz. Alora Diffuser in isola scent. Value = $60.00

Baggu reusable bag. Value = $9.00

30 ct. Tatcha Blotting Papers. Value = $12.00

Pop Physique Original Butt DVD. Value = $13.99

1 oz. bottle of Sprout Exfoliant. Value = $10.00

1 oz. bottle of Sprout Cleanser. Value = $10.00

7.2 oz. bag of Original Pretzel Crisps. Value = $3.00 - I actually buy these and can tell you they are great, especially with hummus.

1.35 oz. bag of Bear Naked Fruit and Nut Granola. Value = $0.45

Postagram Prints gift card good for 10 prints. Value = $10.00

2 coasters with a 15% coupon for Benziger Family Winery.  

The total value of this first PopSugar must have bag is $113.98.  Holy cow, what a great value!  I gotta be honest though I'm not sure the diffuser is worth $60.00.  It smells good but I would never pay that much for a diffuser.  I'm very excited about the Govino glasses because I got different set in my Quarterly Box.  Snacks are always welcome in my house so the pretzels and granola was great.  The DVD is kinda cool and I'm going to try and use it this weekend.  I often get bored with workout DVD's because it's the same thing over and over.  This one is part of a set so I'll be curious to see if they send the others in the following months.  The postagram print thing looks kinda cool.  From what I can tell you take a picture and they send an actual postcard with that picture on it to whoever you choose.     

Verdict: This PopSugar bag is much better than last month.  Can't wait to see what next month brings!  

**I am not any type of sponsor paid or unpaid for PopSugar.  I pay for these subscriptions myself.


  1. Great items! I have a Bagu and it's enormous. Those pretzel chips are delicious, too. Great box; I hadn't heard of this one before!

    1. This is a new box. The first one last month was just kind of meh. This is is great. I will totally use all the stuff in here and some items will make great gifts! It's a little pricey but they value is definitely there.
